A few years ago, I went to a New Year's party where everyone wrote a letter to their future selves. The idea was to have a stupid little note from yourself to open five years from that date. Did you change? Did anything else? Any surprises?
I’m pretty sure I was supposed to open it this year, but damned if I can find it. That resolution to be more organized really took flight, huh?
I was drunk at the time, and I’m sure I wrote something flip (I’m soooooo witty when I’m drunk). Considering how much has changed in that time, though, I really wish I could find the letter. Good God, my life today would knock Early Twenties Garvey for a loop.
Anyway, I wrote a new letter this morning, and I’ll post it on December 31, 2007. If you want to play along, feel free. Write a letter to yo’sef today and either post it to your own site, or leave it as a comment on the toybox in one year.
(Getting drunk and writing it is optional.)
